Ricky Giles resigns at Zephyrhills

Longtime North Suncoast baseball coach Ricky Giles has resigned at Zephyrhills, athletic director Bruce Cimorelli confirmed Thursday afternoon.

“It wasn’t a good fit for me,” Giles said.

The Bulldogs finished 5-20 in Giles’ only season as head coach.

Before taking over his alma mater last year, Giles coached rival Pasco. He took the Pirates to the playoffs 13 times in 17 seasons and led them to the Class 4A state title game in 1997. Giles made a controversial exit from Pasco after the 2012 season after a district investigation into his conduct.

Giles said he enjoyed his brief time at the Bulldogs but he never felt comfortable there.

“It was strange,” Giles said. “You’ve been in one spot for so long. All of a sudden, you go to something else. It’s a totally different situation. I just found that that wasn’t a place for me."
